Dirk Berg-Schlosser Award

This prize is given to the originators of the three best info-graphic posters at our annual Summer Methods School. The award recognises the instrumental role of eminent political scientist Dirk Berg-Schlosser in bringing our Methods School to life.

Creating a poster is an ideal opportunity to present your work-in-progress in a concise, accessible, visually appealing format, and to receive feedback from fellow participants, Teaching Assistants and Instructors. Typically, the work would form part of your PhD research, but it could also be an ongoing applied research project or similar.

Posters were judged by a jury of Summer School teaching staff and the winners announced during the Welcome Reception on Sunday 6 August at 18:00.

Prizes were given to the best three posters, as chosen by our jury of Methods School teaching staff.

  • First prize €250
  • Second prize €150
  • Third prize €100
